I'm getting a little frustrated and I don't know what I should do. So I am asking for opinions on this one.
I am supposed to be going to WDW the week after Easter, which is only a little over 2 months away. My nephew will be there with his school performing with their band and orchestra. My sis wanted to go, but can't afford to. I would love to go, but now I'm thinking I should skip it too.
Airfare is a huge reason why. I cannot find anything affordable for that time of year. The lowest I can come up with is $400, and that means driving to Detroit and flying out of there, which is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from my home. So I am not thrilled with that option. I have already told my nephew that if airfare does not drop a bit, I will cancel, but I really don't want to.
My second reason is just general frustration with how this is all coming together. The bands have an itinerary, but not one that is for sure 100% what they are going to do. In fact, I would already have to add another day onto the front end of the trip, as what was going to be a day for the bands to enjoy themselves has now become another performance day. Ugg. Which means another $180 for another night at a Value resort. Which is just crazy to begin with!
So for just room and airfare this trip is already at about $1400 dollars. I have an AP, so at least I don't need a park pass. But then we are still talking food, and any souvineers. Plus, I have no idea how much I would actually get to see my nephew perform. I am kind of clueless on that, and as they don't have any firm plans yet, he cannot help me figure it out.
What do you all think? Is there any way that airfare will drop by a good chunk? How much time do you actually get to see the kids performing when they are there with their groups? I really don't know what to do. I would love to go, and have made all the plans to go, but I don't know if I s hould. What would you do?
